Mr. W. W. I'oster, deputy minister of 
■public works, veturnod yesterday from 
Ucluelet and Clayoiiuot, to which points 
he went last Saturday for the purpose 
of conferring with the residents and 
iookluK into road and other public 
works necessities on the spot. He was 
accompanied by Mr. J. G. C. Wood, 
M.P.P. for Albernl, who returned to the 
caput?! with him yesterday. The min- 
ister and liis companion motored as far 
as Port Albernl and back to Victoria, 
and report road conditions exceptionally 
good for the season, the travelling be- 
ing excellent virtually all the way be- 
tween Victoria and the C. P. R.'s Paci- 
fic terminal. 

At Uolulet the deputy minister met in 
conference the officers and members of 
the local branch of the Vancouver 
Island Development League as to road 
work, with which good frogrcss is 
everywhere being made. The road to 
oonnect Ucluelet with Clayoquot has al- 
ready bfon begtm, and, although there 
is considerable heavy clearing involved, 
lim use vf uoukey c-iigiiica and other 
modern appliances enables the workers 
to make rapid advance with the .un- 
djjrtaklng. ' •- '^ 

Tho dfeputy minister has also auth- 
orized a four-mile extension not before 
provided for down the Uchilet peninsula 
as far ;iH Leo's store. 

Tine Baach Driveway 

From Clayofiuot for a distance of ap- 
proximately lo miles toward Uclulet 
iliere exists no netcesslty for road hulltl- 
1ns, nature having provided on the in- 
comparably clear, smooth and hard 
beach an Ideal driveway for motor cars 
or any other form of- vehicle. The 
riuestlon of tlie desired ro<id connection 
between Long Beach and .Si)roat Luke — 
the latter already In touch with Port 
.Vlbcrni and .Albernl — was diMcu.'ised 
with the Interesterl re.sldenls, who wore 
Informed by Mr. Foster that, while pre- 
liminary surveys would be proceeded 
with by the government this season, no 
final decision as to construction would 
be reached until the report Is In hand 
from Col. Thomson, b;ised on his sea- 
son's ln\-estlgatlon8 with Strallicona 
Park as his base and the devMopment 
of the lslan<l roads system with the 
part as a focal point belns; ever kept 
In view. 

Upon tlie receipt of this report, the

Residents Are Pleased 

Tiie meetings of -the deputy minister 
wltli the settlers and other residents 
of the west coast district were most 
satisfactory to ail parties and from 
every standpoint, the residents btlng 
finick to recognize and acknowledge the 
excellent work being done for them by 
the present administration, and some 
of its heretofore strongest political 
foemen being among the firpt to give 
ungrudged testimony to the fact that 
Albernl recognizes end fully appreciates 
the business-like and systematic aid lo 
provincial de\elopment and progress 
that Is being rendered unostentatiously 
by the works department. 

Before returning to the city, Mr. FVjs- 
ter confirmed the appointment of Mr. 
H. H- Lee, of ParksvUle, es road fore- 
man for th« Albernl district, this being 
a direct promotion from the local 
rankii. Mr. 1/«b has niadn an exoellent 
foreman under Mr. Wood, now member 
for rh« district, and he will undoubted- 
ly rise to the re^itilrements of his high- 
er office. (

OTT.VWA, April II. — Tin- ilepartment 
of labor Is in cirminunlcation with Llie 
XInlted States government with the 
possibility of co-operation In the gen- 
eral study of conditions tinderlying 
the increased cost of living. The 
United Stales idea appears to Im for 
a world-wide Inquiry. 

Richard Grlgg. the new commissioner 
of commerce. Is preparing? a report fOr 
fhe minister of trade nnd commerce on 
the condition and usefulness of Canad- 
ian agencies In the United Kingdom 
and the countries of Europe. It Is pro- 
1)8 ble that the InvcBtlgation, which has 
already Included these agencies, will 
,je extended to cover those In inc out- 
lying parts of the empire and in the 
Orient. Upon Mr. Grigg's report will

ROME, April n.— -The origin of the 
(istoundlng desv.aleh from Madrid, 
which mirporiea to have the authority 
of tho Papal nun<-i;it'.ire tln're. nnnounc- 
iiiK tho -.ifMih ..f ]■■>[>■■. Is incomprehen- 
sible to tile Vautaii, from which no 
commuiiicatiofl" Was sent that posslhly 
coulii I" . onstrued into such an erron- 
»oiiK i.iM.ii. The Pope's condition to- 
day was as physically perfect as could 
be expected In one of his years. 

-The Pope's physician, 'Dr. Marchia 
Fava, after ridiculing thie report, author- 
ized the statement that the Pontiff was 
normal and satisfactory. Cardinal 
Merry Del Val, the Papal Secretary of 
State, was more explicit He said the 
pope had been in , excellent health 
throughout the whole winter. Indeed 
the Pontiff had experienced better 
health than in any winter In his latter 
life. He suffpred no attuck of gout, or 
even a cold, except an Insignificant one 
a few weeks ago, when audiences were 
not really susv)cnded, but postponed, in 
order to give him a little rest before 
Easter week. As an indication of the 
Pope's present stren^^th and health the 
cartlliial added: 

".Vfter every day tlT! HoU- Father 
rises with the sun, says mass, then 
takes a cup of coffee without solid 
food. He deals with all tho affairs of 
the church, grants private audiences, 
receives sometimes a tliou.sand people, 
always a few luindred daily, continuing 
until 1 o'clock without rest or food, ex- 
ccin at times another oup of coffee. 
After a light luncheon his work con- 
tinues until late Ip the evening. 

"How many younj? men,'" asked the 
Cardinal, "could maintain a life ns does 
the venerable pontiff, who has almost 
completed 77 years?" 

Tho Cardinal added I Mat Die people 
should mistrust the Impressions gained 
liy those who see the Pope as they are 
decclveri by his face, which seems to 
show 111 health, when In reality It hears 
only the marks of care. 

The Pope spent many hours today in 
hard work. He first received the papal 
secretary. Then Cardinal Delia Volpe. 
Prefect of the Index spent considerable 
lime with his Holiness. Later the Pope 
received Cardinal ilUlot of the Gregor- 
ian University, with whom he con- 
versed for half sn liour. Senor de Es- 
trada, the Argentine minister at the 
Vatican ami lils family also visited the 
Pope as well as Prince Borgheso and 
Count nnd Counte?s de .Jongho. Tho 
Ppntlff also receive.! in general audience 
more than one hundred persons. 

In progress, and reported to Attorney 
General AV. .7. Bowser by long-dlstaneu 
telephone. Jie .-^uid that, the men who 
went to work in the camps of th^ Can- 
adian Northern railroad contractors, on 
MondHV had not been interfered with, 
l.iu i;angs of I. W. W. men were still 
i«lorm the line of work, most of them 
bfiug on the opposite bank of the river. 
A great many of these men are armed, 
and he suggested that 50 more men be 
sent to police the works. 

Authority was given to send the re- 
quired police, and he was instructed to 
take the weapons from the I. W. W. 
men. It is anticipated that when these 
are disarmed the trouble will be ended. 
YALE, B. C, April 11.— Thirty bottles 
of liquor, consisting of whisky, rum and 
brandy, were seized by Provincial Con- 
stable Chalmers, of Yale, on the arrival

The men wer« v»ry much eXclted 
when their Ihiuor was taken from

OTT.\WA, April 11.— It Is learned 
that the representatives of tho West 
Indian governments who haN'o been In 
t)ttHwa for several weeks past ar- 
ranging a reciprocal trado agreement 
devoted moat of their spare time to a 
situdy of 'Canadian confederation and 
the manner In which It was brought 

A practical result of their visit apart 
from the framing of a trade agreement, 
may be the bringing about at some 
future date of a political union of the 
various crown colonies which now con- 
stitute the West Indian group of Brit- 
ish dependencies. Such a confedera- 
tion. It Is believed, would result in an 
Improved and more economical admin- 
istration of public affairs In that por- 
tion of the British Empire and In-

ia^■in£ lor tlie "hi 
O^ntty on government matters. Hla 
■ai^jpearance this afternoon was com- 
"ijlented on by President Von Cramer 
98 the first occasion on which a pre- 
mier of a Canadian province had ad- 
dressed the Vancouver Canadian club. 
The speaker chose "The responsi- 
bilities of 'British Columbia" as his sub- 
ject and in discussing it declared that 
the fiituro of the province is bright, 
with prospects of uni>araileled prosper- 
ity. Because of the fact that the or- 
ganl'-sation was offering a place where 
discussion of the public weal could be 
carried on in a harmonious way, the 
premier said the work hcing done v.-as 
of national signliicance and of great 

"This province occupies a -very 
prominent place in the commercial 
world," the speaker continued, "and 
particularly in that part which is 
centered in London." 

He referred to the speech of Earl 
Grey before the Canadian club and de- 
clared that thoughts so ably epitom- 
ized by that^t*3.te,^tt»W)i,5;«truck the key- 
note of what the world, the British 
Emjjlre and the Dominion expect of 
British Columbia; what they have a 
right to expect now and In the fu- 

ITevar Slscooragsd 

"One must remember," said the pre- 
mier, "thut British Columbia has only 
iieeii under organized K.overnmcnt for 
50 years and under responsible govern- 
ment for a considerably shorter time. 
The first speaker the British govern- 
ment ever had is still alive at Victoria 
and the work of these pioneers has 
left its imi)ression on British Co- 
lumbia and Csuiada. AUhmigh the 
country has labored under many handi- 
caps no dl.scouragement and no hard- 
ship has Induced Us aggressive and 
thrifty people to give up public de- 
velopment as a forlorn hope." 

Then the premier dealt forcibly with 
the need ot defence. While It was no 
part of a provincial government's 
functions to look after defence matters, 
yet he urged that the people of Brit- 
ish Columbia should arouse from their 
apathy respecting military and naval 

"We should be as keen on defence 
and patriotism as we are on the sale 
of a, double corner" was his comment. 
He pointed out that the assets of 
the province ran Into millions. "What 
are we doing to Insure this tremen- 
dous wealth'.'" he asked. "Are we do- 
ing anything at all la a national 

A Hot* of 'WaraiiMr 

He recalled that formerly the Royal 
Navy maintained a Pacific squadron 
at Estiulmalt. But today, with the 
wealth a hundred times as great, tha 
country had no naval defence at all. 
He sounded a note of warning as to-, 
the situation which might arise In 
Western Canada tnroagh international 

"On the question of naval efficiency 
the national government can never do 
too much to [ilease the Canadians of 
British Columbia," he said. 

He emphasized the duty British Co- 
lumtDia owed to Canada by opening up 
and developing her areas and from 
this point proceeded to spea'K tiumi di-- 
cldedly In tavor of an all-white popu- 
lation. "British Columbia must be 
kept white," he said. "We are willing

to date, many of which have been paid, 
aggregate approximately $330,000. and 
many lof the \msettled claims relate to 
the more valus^blo property nearer In 
towards Pembroke street. Doubtless 
many of these unsettled claims will have 
to be arbitrated, but when settled the 
amount paid will, it Is believed, have 
greatly exceeded the original estimates. 
One claim indicates the difference be- 
tween the estimate find the amount 
asked. The claim is 180,000; the esti- 
mate about Ml, 000. 

On Pandora avenue, between Cham- 
bers street and Fernwood road, where 
the street will bo widened some slxietn 
feet, the estimate of cost was »1-, 889, 
while the claims .submitted by owners 
aggregate $52,023. For tlie extension of 
Pandora avenue from Fernwood road to 
Fort street, for which work a separate 
bylaw was passed, the estimate of cost 
was $3'.»,670 and claims filed aggregate 
$170,000. Despite the fact that a num- 
ber of claims have already been set- 
tled there still remains claims of about 
$72,000 to meet. 

Then there is the whining scheme 
tor the same thoroughfare between 
Douglas street and Amelia street, be- 
tween which points It is proposed to 
wldon the street by expropriating 
a twenty-foot strip off the property on 
the north side. The estimate of cost 
was $1 6:^,000. All the claims have not 
yet been put in by the owners, so that 
no aggregate of the amount to bo de- 
manded can be ascertained, but- In the 
case of one property alone, that of 
Mr. Todd, owner of the building In 
which IB locato<l tlie Knights of I'ythlaa 
hall, the claim Is $115,000. arfd other 
claims are in almost equal proportion. 
In regard to the Hillside avenue 
widening scheme there lies been ilttle

pro^perty is nearly all hold by small

what Boems llkoly tu be the KitatuBt

loKiiul lOiiimioDei are aluiUar In a Ken- 
fial wuy to tho«e found In the \li-lnlly 
of BuUe, and hence the ore bodies are 
likely to ho continuous. Before an 
ounce of gold was washed out of the 
Atlln gravels or a deposit of copper wat« 
found at Stewart, the Colonist expressed 
the conviction based upon Us Keneral 
knowledKc of the coimuy Uku r

which flow the tributaries of th« Hard,

will bo found to be one of the richest 
In the world.

home of a larire population, which will 
fln^ employment to farming, ranching, 
fruit-growing, lumbering and mininK. 
There are large forests of excellent 
timber. Thenre are numerous areas of 
good farming land. There are great 
tracts, whlfch only require Irrigation to 
make them fertile. There are higher 
tracts tlt&t will always be valuable for 
ptsturage, although too elevated for the 
raising of crops. Wo know of no part 
of the province with more to commend 
It to railway construction than that 
through which the Pacific Great Eastern

The eyes of all British people, and 
to a large extent of the people of the

House of Commons, which Is now deal- 
ing for the third time with the question 
of Home Rule for Ireland. Kollowlng 
our usual practice, which Is to avoid 
any expression of opinion upon matters 
at issue in the United Kingdom, we 
shall not do more than keep our read-

"The people of BrltUih Colurablo," 
says the Montreal Hefald. "seem to 
want railways more than anything else 
in the world." If the Herald would 
make a tour of British Columbia it 
would be like the rest of us. We sim- 
ply must have railways and we are go- 
ing to get them. If the Herald'a pol- 
itical friends at Ottawa had realized 
this when It was In their power to help 
the province secure what It needs in 
this regard, things might have been 
differently politically here. The Liber- 
als had their chance In British Colum- 
bia and threw It away.

Sir. — In an editorial Item in Sun- 
day's Colonist you say. "If you happen 
to be a descendant of one Colonel 
Jacob Baker, formerly of Phlladelphin. 
you win be interested to know thai 
you may be entitled to a share in Fair- 
mount Park In that city, which is 
worth many millions of dollars. A 
suit has beon ontoreiil on behaU of thf

bad plan for you to .. overbad; n^mKmZ-: 
record and see If y«u can conneot up 
with the said Jacob." 

Just keep your eye on the case ai^ 
report progress occasionally. I ca|il 
connect up with the said "J|ioob" aa i^r 
rigfiL colonel Jacob Baker ;Wf Phl]# 
delphla was a brotbof pf my;inotber% 
great grandfather^ Tho tyvo'^hi^theps 
took opposite sides In the American 
revohitli-.n, an«» of th«»ro, Jcbn 'Pn-ke*". 
afterwards removing to Nova Scotia 
with the U. K. Loyalists, and the 
other, Jacob, taking service In the 
American army, and at the close of 
the war settling in Philadelphia, 
where he was afterwards visited by 
members of his mother's family irom 
Nova Scotia. All of these thingrs are 

easy o f p r oo f , much aasie r than w — 
prove the existence of tho jnar^y mil- 
lions awaiting proof of heirship 'to the 
aforesaid Jacob Baker. iMy relations 
in Nova Scotia have \n the past spent 
a good deal of ihbney' Ih'^vIniglTii ~ 
case investigated, but thus far vtith 
unsatisfactory results. If the Toronto 
heirs who are now taking up the flght 
can prove the existence of this vast 
fortune i^nd also thatiit is'get-at-able 
after tHe expiration oil over a bun4re<l 
yeaiv I h^ve no doubt tbat the r^ilj^ 
heirs of "one Colonel Jacob Baker of 
Philadelphia" who live in NoVa'ScotIa, 
will feel greatly obliged to them. T 
would be .wlMlng %o allow a Jlber.-.i

heroiOnij of the "jolly Jack tars," who 
;iaboriotvly heiave those barge-like whale- 
ibcats over an unconsciously long course. 
^ In short give no canoe or four-oar 
Otttrtlrtfer prlises unless there are 4 con- 
t^iiikali' at least, and mark well, sir ! 
The races are rowed or paddled within 
a. certain time limit. 1 am unwilling to 
flaunt the disgracefully slow times for 
the distances I have personally taken in 
/previous ycarsi 

My main idea is that it condm-t-.s 
neither to anyone's pleasure nor profit 
i,t|)llt a couple of hours' racing should 
driiig their weary length over a whole 
' Wlhy not havo a couple of motorboat 
races? ^ X^0tti' : 

Why not row Ihw^ Slwash races in 
heats over a, shorter course, :i:i there 
call be no question that It is to see tho 
rhythm and watermanship of tho Indian 
canoe men that 90 per cent, of the crowd 
ti;rn out. Why not start the shorter 
ruces down the Arm, as soon as the 
longer races have passed outward 
bound? So as to fill in the interval 
under the nresent regime spent in wond- 
ering how and when the competitors are 
Koing to get back. Finally could not 
the .siigg'e.stion bo made that the mem- 
bers of the four-oared crews wear Jer- 
seys -of one color, as oven If dressed 
alike, their time and swing or rather 
till' want of these essentials emphasise 
tiulte sufficiently the fact that they are 
too often "scratch" crews. 

These suggestions would enormously 
improve an annual event, which, as at 
pre.sent constituted, Is anomalously en- 
ough, in tho position of a picture which 
owes Its popularity to Us frame.

trated is the reason why the Colonist, in 
pursuance of its policy of looking at 
provincial development from the stand- 
pclnt of the whole province, has always 
beon an advocate of a North-and-Souti. 
fine of railway. It Is rather a remark- 
able thing that the conformation of the 
country Is such that a railway can be

1 1 will '■ afford 0*»r merchants an oppor» 
tunlty to do buslnefs on et)ual terms 
with all oUiers in the country which the 
Toilway IWll mMte accessible. 

This undertaking Is of present inter- 
est bcca:u8e Mr. D'Arcy Tate, formerly 
of the Orand Tifunk Paclflc and now 
vice-president and General Counsel of 
the Paclflc Great Eastern, left tho city 
lost nlgt^t for ^London to complete fln- 
anclal arrangements which will make 
the very early beginning of construction 

. {losslble. Mr. Tate la so well and so fav. 

•^y^||«ibly known In Tills city, that he needs 

"^l\U introduction. Me is an exceedingly 
capable man, a lawyer of ability iw>d at* 
talnments, and «wie who has studied very 

1 ..thoroughly the transportation problem 
-^■'j'^'lt relates lo Brtlsh Columbia. Asso- 
ciated with Mr. Tate in the directorate 
of the i:ompany are Messrs. Timothy 
I'^oley, Patrick Welch and J. W. Stewart, 
who constitute the great contracting Arm 
of Foley. Welch & Stewart. This firm Is 
undoubteiily the leading concern In Its 
line of business in America. It has been 
engaged in the constniction of all, or 
m^aily all. the transcontinental railways, 
it not only owns what Is jierhaps the 
most complete construction plant in ex- 
istence, but it i s a very wealthy A rm 
and each of tlie par«D«ri Is among the 
millionaires. Their connection with the 
enterprise is a guarantee of its being 
si cedily carried through to completion. 
Mr. Stewart Is the president of the com- 
pany, and he will devote his great excr 
cutlve ability to Its management and to 
making it one of the greatest dcvelop- 
iiitnt projects In Canada. 

Wiilo the plans of the company and 
Its contract with the province provide- 
inly for a railway as far nor in as Fort 
George, this IS not Intended to be the 
limit of its operations. It Is the Inten- 
ton of the company to extend its line 
northwards to reach the agricultural 
loads of the Peace Rivr-r Valley, as well 
as the Rreat region lying norcli of what 
i;i culled thf Omenlca, a region known 
t'l be richly minerallaed and containing 
large areas adapted for colonization. 
Many Colonist readers may rocall \v!iiit 
we have said In limes of the great 
unexplolted region lying between the 
point where tho Flndlay and Parsnip 
livers unite to form the Peace, and on 
tlif- south the blard the great westerly 
alTluent of the Mackenzie on .the north. 
Of thf- rUlincps of this great area in

This north and south railway will be 
the means of tying up the northwesterly 
and southeasterly parts of the province. 
It will make a vast region tributary to 
tho coast cities. It is commercially 
speaking a great strategic line. The 
Inevitable result of tho construction of 
trunacontlnental lines is to draw the 
traflio which they create In eastern and

£ioari|^f Tjrade, and in responee to the 
remarks of Mr.' H. Moulding WileoUt 
who as President of the Board W|U9 the 
spokesnmn for the delegation. lUrsaid: 
"Thls'wlll be the next great wotit utt> 
dertaken by the government." 

But we are asked why, If this la thf 
case, Mr. Borden has done nothing to 
imtA^IWMi this promise. The reason- 
able 'an«Wer to this is that It has not 
yet been formally presented for bis con? 
n- '■ Mtr3reRl8Br*hii3 only h& 

in 111 1 11 1- a few months, and it is un- 
reasonable to suggest tliat he should be 
ready with a plan of action in mat- 
ter. His predecessor had not carried it 
forward to that stage. We are asked 
why Mr. McBrlde has done nothing in 
the premises. This is a strange uues- 
tlon to come from a quarter in Which It 
is held that Mr. McBrlde has already 
dorte too much; but there Is a satisfac- 
tory answer to It. Mr. McBrlde has 
embarked upon n policy of railway 
construction, and his plans are being 
expanded from year to year. They have 
reached . the stage when the 3ute Inlet 
railway may properly be Included In 
them. Tlie^ statement has been made 
that this paper "has abandoned the 
idea of a national bridge or system of 
bridges to give the Island connection 
with the Mainland." We are unable to 
nee how any one can justify such a 
statement. We have thought that If 
we had made anything clear it wag that 
this is what we are working for. It is 
no more Inconsistent to speak of a 
■'nutionar' connection In the advocacy 
of the ownership of the railway by an 
independent company wiin me raus- 
available lo all lines on tlie Mainlsn<l 
on equal terms than there Is In apply- 
lyljig thf icnii "Natioiiiil Tran.«contlii- 
ental Railway" to the llnp from Winni- 
peg to Moncton. whU-h file Grand 
Trunk Pacific Is to lease, but which 
all companies may use. 

Ju:;t a few worfls moT-f In r»f;ar(! to 
j ihesc criticisms that are being direct- 

problem with which Parliament Is 
dealing. If one may Judge from what 
appears from time to time In the press, 
the people ot KngtanO,- Wales and Beet- 
land are apathetic in regard to the 
question. There have been no public 
demonstrations In Great Britain, either 
for or against the measure, although 
we were told some monthp ago that 
tho.,Uiiioniiis were about to start a 
tMittfttiyn ^^u^ and that

counter tjotnupalgn. This attitude of

Which win he Interpreted differently ^y 
the friehdi' ii;nd opponents of the meas- 
ure. In -^Nitand. outside of Ulster, the 
TtUltlic RijpP; Is remarkably quiescent. 
Tt^e Vll|^^ Unionists take an extreme 
position ^; hostility. The passage of 
the measure {through the -House of Com-

Have you ever seen a "futurist" plc- 
■4<— yow^- hav o not, you li av ei n o t 
much. The "futurLst" is a 
creature who endeavors to depict in 
form and color hl.<< state of mind, not a 
state of mind that you may share with 
him, but the alleged state of his al- 
leged mind, A "futurist" picture 1.S 
simply chaotic. Thic fornts are like 
nothing ever seen on land or sea; the 
colors are true to nothing. The person 
who thinks he sees in life the things 
that "futurists" put upon canvas Is a 
degeneraii . .\ well-regulated human 
mind is orderly and definite, Its con- 
ceptions are distinct and Individual. 
One of the most-talk«d-of "futurist" 
pictures Is of a crowded ballroom. On- 
ly an Idiot could see a ballroom as tho 
artist (7) says he sees It. There nev- 
er was yet a room full of dancers In 
which distinct individuality was not 
con.«!plcuou8; yet this painter makes his 
picture a confused Jumble that would 
be a nightmare if It were not supreme- 
ly silly. Give a child a box of paints 
and it win r-mear colors on a piece of 
paper without any regard to form and 
will assure you that one smear repre- 
sents a man, another a horse, perhaps, 
and another somethinK oisn. This 
nmuses you, for you know the dniibs of

Wrecks Motor Car— A motor car 
came to grief at an early hour yestor 
day morning when a driver, in attempt- 
ing to turn the corner of Broad and 
Johnson streets towards Government at 
a high rate of speed, ran the machine 
into a telephone pole with such force as 
to *it«)»i!y turn the front portion into 
a scrap heap. Constable Florence, 
patrolllns his beat on Government at., 
heard the crash, and, nishing up, ex- 
tricated the man from the wreck. Th<i 
constable instantly recognized the 
machine as that owneil by Mr. Louis 
Smith, proprietor of tho Grand Pacific 
hotel. The driver stated he was ehaf- 
feur for Mr. Smith, and expressed his' 
Intention of proceeding to a nearby ho- 
tf'l to telephone the owner, The easy 
assurance of the man led the constnble 
to believe hJs statement to be correct, 
but while attempts were being made 
to the macliliip, Mr >-mitj| 5,1^. 
.self appeared upon t'h , and, in 

wraNiful tones, declart-u timt the In- 
dividual who caused all tho trouble 
had stolen the machine and was simply 
riding Ht his expense. In the mean- 
time thv drixi-r had made his escape.

The present status of the work of 
placing underground the wires of the 
B.C. Telephone coriipany, together ■with 
minor matter.s of mutual interest to the 
city and comiiany, were discussed at a 
conference lield at the City Hall yes- 
terday morning between Mayor Beck- 
with and other members of the council, 
and Mr. G. H. liaise, of Vancouver, 
genera! .superintendent of the oompanyi 
and Mr. Johnson, of the locui office.* 

Mr. Halsti stated that i ^■ ork had 
..UriMHUMMBled as fast a^ pos.siblc and 
']^^!^pgny of tlie property owners in 
tiie territory set out In the bylaw, 
passed by the ratepayers eighteen 
months ago to authorize the raising of 
?100,000 for this work, had given tlie 
neoesaary permission to the company 
to run the lateral" conduits from the 
street conduits into the centre of the 
lilocks. whence the wires would be dis- 
tributed to the varlou.s users in each 
block. But a number of owners are 
still holding out and flelayiiiK tlie pro- 
gress of the work, ht stated. The com- 
liany liad already spent $50,000 oTi this 

Under the bylaw ti,e city. In cases 
where owner.s wilt not agree to permit 
the entratice of the condiiit.s lo the 
blocks, Is forced to expropriate the 
necessary right of way,' and Mr. Halse 

Jjleved this courso .should be followed 

telhoise cases wheio t)wner8 proved ob- 

rrate.- ■ 

Discussion also took place regarding 
the laying of conduits outside the area 
named In the bylaw, tire mayor point- 
ing out the necessity of the comjJ'any's 
woiKrrjeii]iiig well- «.he«.ii of tlie 
paving work .10 that no unnecessary 
delay should occur. 

Mr. Halse declared that every effort 
would be made to do .so ,and asstirert 
the city representatives that the com- 
pany is quite as anxious as Is the city 
that the work sliould he rushed ahead 
lo iTC>iui."i!etl6ii in View of liie early com- 
pletion of the central exchange when 
the new distribution system should he 
placed in 

On the point of ilie complaints re- 
cently made against the erection of 
poles on streets such as Dallas road 
and other thoroughfares Mr. Halse 
fitatpd that If the owners would give 
the company the rlgiit to erect poles at 
the hark of lots the street pol(."» would 
he removed and s smaller anil less un- 
sightly pole could then be used. 

Mayor Beckwith expressed the hope 
that those owners who arf h'Oldlng Ijack 
and delaying the completion of the un- 
derground work by refusing to give the 
comptiny tlie right of arcess to the var- 
ious downtown Mocks would consent to 
do so, thus facilitating the work of re- 
niovlnjf the poles and greatly beautify- 
ing the city streets.

Hattiral Hl»tory Society Make* a Timely 

Appeal To the Plgwer-tovlng 


I*»t year an appeal was made to he 
publlu by the wild flower commlltee of the 
Natural Hl»tory Society to conserve the wild 
tlowers to be foumi in the viclnll" of vlo- 
torln. but which were rapidly becomliiK 
scarcer until there was but too nnub reason 
to fear their total dlsappeBrancc:. With tho 
return of Uif nowerinp sras^u It may, be 
well to recall whnt was then said. It was 
pointed out that plants do not grow spon- 
taneously. Many propagate their species by 
seeds or hulbs alone, and If tbey are de- 
prived of the power of reproduction through 
those means, those ;)lant» will suicly sooner 
or latf-r dlES-Ppear from the face of tlie 
.-arili The Illy for Instance should lie 
broken or cut off. not pulled ' up. and thn 
leaves should be left, -jthcrwiso the bulb 
will surelv perish for want of Ihem. The 
ladles' sllpppr has a very slight hold In 
ihp moss where U Is found, and that flower, 
therefore, sbould also l>o broken off. So thst 
the bulb iiiul leaf may be left. 

To attempt to transplant a flowerlnR 
Plant at the time of its blooming Is only 
courtlnB failure. This should bo done al 
a season when the follaRe has <llfd down 
3„^ .w,p ..iHn' l« r«stlna. The older resi- 
dents'hcrc can remember when Beacon Hill 
was a sheet of white while the white UJy

The division wall inslallPfl by Mr. Thomas

by Mr. Thomson, will be retained, but will 
be Hreatly strcnglhcned by butlrossps at

coating of cement, mrtltlng 11 a much more 
substantial aff-ilr. The floor has be-n lorn 
up in many placi s and a new- syslem of 
under-draining installed. 

When the rescrvoii- was orlBiiiaHy con- 
slruoled a syslem of drains along the edges 
of the rccejita< ie..ani1 at the boltnm of the

shown that these drains, which were Inteod- 
ffl lo absorb any moisture beneath the floor. 
w«»re actually Installed in such manner that 
they were above llin svirface of the bottom 
of the reservoir. Other defects were dis- 
covered. The lolnis In the walls had been

Immediately behind the nulside coating that 
the asphalt netually bad percolated to a

water must have leaked away. 

Recently sfhe city awarded, a contract lo 
the Produtirs Bpck And ftfa.'^el fompany 
for the si4>P'y "f sand and ' gravel. The 
first loads delivered al the reservoir were 
refused because the material was not 
washed, as the inspector upon Ihe work, 
Mr. A. E. Formal, claimed It should hav* 
been. The company claimed the contract 
did not call for vrasbed materlala. A search 
for the contract wfis then made In the

children grow up to be Idle end vicious

"Nor<lyke has decided that he will 
keep Sadofsky and K've liira a -chanre. 
to play up to the brilliant record he 
made with Baltimore, and .Merritt will 
also b« used for utility purposes. 

•Jimmy .\dams threw a knee out in

Little Birdie Cree, a valuable mtm- 
ber of Harry AVolverton's Highlanders, 
Is expected to be missed all this sea- 
son. He has not signed and does not 
intend doing so unless his ttrms are 
accepted. The midget outfielder, wiho 
left the club in hitting and base run- 
ning last season, has stated his case 
very clearly. There Is no HI will in 
ills attitude. Unltss his manager 

comes through he is goinn to desert 
the diamond for a year. 

Elmer Strlckett, the former brewer, 
who has Joined the Brooklyn Nationals, 
has a "wave-spltter." tt ^a^fcl^l which 
breaks In at least P09!'.0ml^MM': ' ***•?'

tlian tb«>^«r<«n»ry spittw. 

jMk Wiurhop states thnt he has heard 
of FMuik Baker's we«kn«M nnd has yet 
to be Introduced to the same. "Any 
time Cobb, Baker, lAjoie, and Jackson 
thtt tb wiUlop the ball." says Jack, "It 
Is simply a mistake or a clerical error, 
not worth Jotting down for futurei use." 

Rube Marquart has mastered the 
"turkey trot" curve, according to dis- 
patches received from the camp at 
which his club was drilling until a few 
days ago. 

Ivan Olsea. shortstop, will be captain 
of the Cleveland Americans this season. 
It had bten thought that Larry LaJoIo 
would have t hat J e b. — Ole e n p l a y ed wUb

y tar's secretary, lieo Sweeney, was 
adopted. It follows: 

While the lacrosse season of 1911 cwi 
hardly be said to have been a brilliant 
success there wore many redeeming fea- 

The greatest interest In lacrosse cir- 
cles In Vlclorl,!, of course, centred on 
the outcome of the Pacific Coast Ama- 
teur Lacrosse Association emblematic 
of the amateur championship of the 
Pacific slope, and the privilege of chal- 
lonKinff for the Mann cup reprcsentinfir 
tlif amateur title In Canarla and practl- 
i-iiUy thfA ■world. 

Althougrh our tciim only succeeded In 
romlnR out in .second place. It Is KTall- 
fyirw to know that the brand of la(>ro.«!so 
as played in this league was very little. 
If any Inferior to thnt of the profes- 
sional organization. 

Tt Is also plerisInK t" notice thnt the 
V. A. C. twelve, of Vnnco\iver, who won 
out In our ncrlcs. Invaded the stronff- 
liold of lacrosse In Toronto, and wore 
scccessful In defeating the Young To- 
lontos In two straight games, thereby 
v.lnnlns: the D. D. Mann cup and tho 
un(llsp\ite(l amateur championship of 

In connection tvlth these matches 
much dls.^aUsfactlon was aroused by 
the action of the Canadian Amateur 
Athletic tJnIon in professionalizing the 
V. A. C. team. However, aince then, 
everything has been nicely settled, and 
tho V. A. C. have no stain whatsoever 
on their amateur status. 

With regard to the city leagues, the 
North Wards were successful In the 
senior series, the Oak Bays in the in- 
icrmediatc, winning' six straignt ganies, 
and the Junior honors went to the North 
Ward Assoclatloa.

There is no settine away from U, 
however, the Islanders of 1912 are a 
likely looking outnt. They are excep- 
tionally fast on the bags, all being 
^rrinters with the possible e.xcGptlon.s

make up for what they lack in that rc- 
.spect by their uncommon ability with

thinks that both Vancouver and Spokane

players who will not be on deck. "Bob"

when the money will be put up. Quer- 
rle is backed- by a puntber of wc'.l- 
known Torontonians. and the series will 
come, no matter which club wins the 
championship of the Dominion La- 
crosse Association. The officials were 
agreed upon, Hewitt suggesting .Tlmmle 
Murphy and MlUy Mclntyre, which 
Querrie agreed upon. , As to dates, it 
is probable that the Vancouver club

If M Palzer, whom TomO'Rourke is

learns more ot tlie science ol .-self pro- 
tection tlie shrewd O'Kourke will prob- 
Hhly be chary about sending him after 
the scalps of the colored heavies w'ao 
occupy the highest places in pugilism 

Palzer' .« yoiitii and stamina added to 
iiis natural aggrcs."! veness have carried 
him to success thus far in his career, 
but arrayed against a sclentlllc slug-' 
ger, like iLangtord for instance, It might 
ho a different story. In the Kaufman 
light, in which he knocked the Callfor- 
nian out In the fifth round, Palzei gave 
a Mtartllng exhibition of Ills recnper- 
iiiivH i)0wers by Immediately Juniplng 
up after Kiiiifniiin had ilatlcncd !;lm on 
his back and returning the compUinont 
with interest, putting his opponent 
down for the count of nine.

Amount of Annual Expend!- 
lures will rruuduiy oe riAtsCl 
by Council — Large Increase 
in Assessable Values 

Tonight the clylc estimates for tli« 
year will probably be brought down 
before the city council la conipleteil 
shape. A meeting of the oommlttei) 
appointed to consider the estlraatos was 
luld last evening at the city hall, but 
behind closed doors. The various con- 
t'.ntiou.-^ itPniK wi-re fully, sronn over. 

Since the first draft was before the 
council many changes and alteratloiiM 
have been made. With the additional 
expense occasioned by the repair of the 
^^mlth'a Hiii reservuai, thtj cost of 
Iv'hlch work will undoubtedly be in ex- 
cess. Of the flg-ure flnst given out, and 
other unforeseen expendlturfH the most 
careful consideration of the estimates 
has been required. When passed by 
the council the details will. ; usual, 
be Incorporated in the annual expend- 
itures, bylaw, -which wlU bg gut through 
its various «tHiHi]l^y s, ';.'< ,'.

The increune in values during tlie past

It is probable that Alderman Cuth- 
berl'8 motion that Mr. Thomas H. Maw- 
»on, the eminent landscape architect, be 
engaged at a remuneration of It.OOO to 
prepare plans for the beautif Ication of 
the parks and open spaces of the city, 
nn well as or Mount DouKlas Park, will 
be again considered. It was taken up 
at last Monday nights meetmg, bui ieii 
over until the estimates were again 
considered. • 

Following the council session, tl>e 
streets commitlee will meet, when the 
report of the special committee com- 
posed of Aldermen Stewart, Okell, An- 
derson and Baker, which visited south- 
ern cities and at last Monday nlshfs 
meeting presented llie results of it.s in- 
vestigation into the class of pavlnK 
laid In the south, will be taken up. 
While this report made no recommend- 
ation, and only gave a synop-sls of the 
various types of pavement and the de- 
cree of durability of each, as demon- 
strated by actual use In those cities,

Carborundum Stones 

Gold Medal, Charleston, 1902 

Combination Stones— These" stones ^i^^^^"^^ 

e>i.ccially for carpenters and.. mechanics,i^^~. 

They are made with one face of coarse and one 
face of very fine grit. The coarse side can be used 
for shariicning dull tools, the fine side to bring the 
required keen, sharp edge. 

Round Combination Axe Stone— The Carborun- 
dum Round Axe Stone has several decided advan- 
tages. It is a" combination stone having ^ne side 
coarse grit and the other fine grit, the same stone 
takes out the nicks and giv- ihc finished edge 
(iiiickly, and it is of such convenient size and shape 
as to be easily carried in the workman's pocket. 

No. T96. 3in. dicyneter by ->8 in. 

Knife Sharpener — .\ round shaft of Carborun- 
dum, firmlv mounted on handle by a steel rod extend-

spade was designed (by one of the most practical concrete men 
in the world) for forcing the concrete back from the forms afid 
aUowing the thin mix to run out against the forms. It is th« 
only spade that will not clog up and beeome unfit for use if 
neglected. For this reason any laborer^can "se it and get just 
as good results as a skilled man, and it is NOT AS EXPEN-

Not a Flaw in either Hat or Guarantee! 

Subject any BUCKLEY hat to the most iearching scrutiny — give it the 
"acid test" of constant wear. 

Read the BUCKLEY guarantee as critically as you would a deed to 
a house and lot. 

Then see if there's any other hat that will give you equal service, or 
any other guarantee thai will protect you as well. 

Buckley Hats 

are made in a modem English factory, by skilled Union workmen. Tlic 
materials are selected from the best the world's markets afford. While made 
in England, the blocks used embody the latest American styles. There's a 
BUCKLEY shape for every type of countenance, and in every BUCKLEY 
hat is the guarantee. Notice this clause in the guarantee: 

"We agree to exchange this hat, if the same is damaged 
h\) accident during the said three months." 

So you see Ihere'li be no quibbling or red tape about the exchange — 
bona fide "accident insurance," as well as an ironclad guarantee of quality! 

On sale in a rvide range of shaf>es, O f\f\
